The fruit for Du Beur dans les Pinards come from a parcel which belonged to the late Jules Chauvet and the label is a Michel Tolmer / Philippe Quesnot creation. Pure Gamay fruit character, juicy red berry on the nose, the palate is fresh, with crunchy, silky red fruit and a lengthy, invigorating finish.
KARIM VIONNET, VILLIÉ-MORGON
Organic Principles, Natural
After working with ‘gang of four’ member Guy Breton, Karim Vionnet started his own production in 2000. He was very much influenced (and supervised) by 1980’s natural wine heroes: Breton, Lapierre, Foillard and Thevenet. Karim farms his parcels without chemicals and makes his wines without additives, he says he makes wines that look like him: ‘Natural and unpretentious’
Karim’s parcels are located in the villages of Quincié, Beaujeu and Lantignié, on very varied types of soil, ranging from marls, schists, granite and sand.
Since 2020, his daughter Noemie has joined the estate, and proud dad Karim hasn’t stopped smiling since.
